is a step, probably an early step, in terms of the developing that capability. jon: well the u.n., the u.s., seoul, said if you launch the missile it will be very provocative act. it could bring on new sanctions. i thought we were sanctioning everything we could in north korea. are we not? >> no, no. again a lot of new techniques have been applied developing new sanctions to iran. one of the methods to apply u.n. and e.u. sanctions of iran was to study the economy of iran. look for have anotherabilities in their financial system and their trade system and that kind of approach has not been applied to north korea very effectively. therefore the sanctions have been rather porous. i would bet north korea buys a lot of things for its missile program in china. we know they buy things for their gas centrifuge program in china. some things are made in germany. probably made in the u.s. china has been a major gap in this whole system. on sanctions and north korea could face tougher action from china might constrict some of its ability to buy things that it absolutely needs for its nuclear progra
kerry is firing back at senator rick santorum. it's all about this. opposition to a u.n. treaty. one that a lot of people thought was a no-brainer. it was about the rights of the disabled all over the world. we brought you this story yesterday. senate republicans rejecting this treaty on tuesday despite the fact that one of their own, bob dole, bob dole, a former majority leader, came to the floor in a wheelchair trying to draw support for this treaty. he was being pushed by his wife and made an impassioned plea. senator santorum explained opposition to this treaty in a piece published in "the daily beast." in part he says this. our nation has been been the worldwide leader when it comes to protecting the disabled. we should be telling the u.n. and not the other way around how to ensure dignity and respect for the disabled. effectively saying nobody tells the united states what to do. it sets a very dangerous precedent perhaps for other things. okay. that sounded legitimate until it came out that that's not what the treaty suggests. senator kerry was mincing absolutely no words in sa
the weekend the regime told the u.n. it would not use those weapons on civilians. officials say syria is suspected of having the third largest stockpile of chemical weapons after the united states and russia. the situation is just one topic being discussed by world leaders and a meeting of the foreign ministers, 40,000 men and women and children have recorded killed in syria during uprising. now, live from washington. are the united states officials commenting that the government has used the chemical weapons? >>reporter: reporters were told they do not have evidence of this but video uploaded by the syrian opposition and impossible to independently verify by fox, claims to show the use of the chemical weapons by assad regime. this fire which allegedly produces toxic smoke began after a tank was unloaded by a syrian jet over rebel-held territory. another video could not be authenticated showed gear confiscate by the opposition. the israeli around to the united states responded that the israelis have intelligence assets monitoring the stockpiles. >> syria has a very varied deep chemica

of the dictator kim jung un. >> this is against the u.n. security council resolutions and we are monitoring the situation closely. and working very closely with the self-defense force and the ministry of defense. this is a dangerous situation. and we do not support those actions right now by north korea. bill: steven yates, sir, good morning and welcome back here to america's newsroom. it's been some time since we talked about this issue. now it's back and on the plate. >> any time you are dealing with long range missile capability it will be a concern. we have thousands of troops stationed in japan and korea. there is talk of being able to reach los angeles or the western coast. no north korean test so far has reached that near abroad. bill: what would korea want to prove with this launch? >> always dangerous to try to climb into the mind of a north korean leader. but there would have to be a domestic component to the situation. there are important elections taking place in japan on the 16th and south korea on the 19th of this month. well within the range of this test that is scheduled to

sign they are not interested in mending their obstructionist ways. the senate was set to ratify the u.n. convention on the rights of persons with disabilities which has already been ratified about 126 countries worldwide and seeks to protect 700 million people with disabilities from discrimination. the convention was based on the landmark americans with disabilities act, which came to pass with the help of republican senator bob dole. the former senate majority leader was on hand to compel his fellow republicans to ratify the u.n. treaty. even an 89-year-old former colleague confined to a wheelchair couldn't unblock this party's entrance see yens. 66 votes were required to ratify the treaty. 38 u.s. senators, all republicans, found reasons to vote against it. they voted against a treaty that said people with disabilities need to be afforded the same right as other people. 38 senators voted no. yet these are the people we're expecting to do what is best for the country and find a compromise to avert the fiscal cliff. how's that going be working for us? next.

this time around. several nations and the u.n. secretary general have repeatedly warned that this is a potential threat and repeatedly warn president assad not to go through it here. >> shepard: there is another thought and dangerous one that assad is just playing a game. >> the idea that he is finally completely desperate. is he realizing finally that he is now surrounded by the rebels in damascus. they are getting closer and closer to it ousting him. that ouster, if he stays there, would end in his death. so, this might be a final negotiating employee on the -- ploy on the part of president assad with the international community. listen. >> another way to look at it though, he wants russia and others to notice he is taking this potentially suicidal step in the hopes of one last diplomatic solution that so far he has been against. but he may now sees a his only hope. so maybe if russia is persuaded that assad is on the doorstep of defeat or suicide for that matter, effective suicide, that russia will finally help us do a deal to get a power sharing arrangement. >> so a

. why the senate would vote down a u.n. treaty to support universal rights for the disabled. but they did, 38 senators voted no. some of the so-called facts about the treaty are simply fabrications. ahead on the program, pretty spirited discussion. i interview one of the senators who voted no. senator mike lee. i confront him about those facts. also former u.s. attorney general dick thornburg, a republican, who has a disabled child and still holds out hope the treaty will pass. >>> plus, a legal battle to tell you about over 21-month-old child named talia. her mother gave her up for adoption without the father's knowledge or permission while he was away from home serving in the military. now he wants talia back. the child's fate hinges on a judge's decision. we'll tell you how the why you ruled and speak with talia's dad. those stories and landmark cases making it to the supreme court. it will decide the issue of same sex marriage. all that ahead along with the "ridiculist." >> "360" coming up in ten minutes. >>> our fifth story "outfront" tragedy in london. a nurse at the h

that was negotiated by republican president george herbert walker bush. it was signed by george walker bush at the u.n., and republican attorney general richard thornburg has testified the former attorney general of the united states, there's no legal requirement whatsoever for the united states to change anything. rick santorum was just not factual. what he did, he gave some people here an excuse to hide behind that when they know that there are people who hate the united nations, who don't want any united nations treaty. and so they gave them a reason to be able to say this is why i'm voting against it. we're going to come back with the hearings next year, again that will show people exactly what the facts are. we'll have all the witnesses in. i think it can be december positive. and ultimately, i would be prepared to put into the treaty language of the resolution of ratification language that can make it more clear than it is today if that will satisfy them. >> the other argument that some of these republicans were making at least to me privately over the past few days, when i was beginning to get
will be meeting with her russian counterpart and that u.n. envoy talking about syria. the u.s. and russia have been on opposite sides of that conflict in sirah -- conflict in syria. however today's meeting is suggesting a possible compromising. all of this comes as fox news reports, the syrian military is mixing deadly chemical weapons. the syrian government has not confirmed they have these weapons, saying only it could not use -- it would not use that type of weapon against its people. president obama has warned of serious consequences if the syrian government uses those chemicals in that civil war. >>> allegations of spying on the high seas. the america's cup controversy involving the oracle racing team. >>> and we're looking live outside of traffic. that's the bay bridge toll plaza. tara is coming back, one more commute look. >>> in about 30 minutes a hearing will get underway in san francisco to determine the fate of a pit -- pit bull that attacked a u.s. park patrol officer's horse. the horse named stony was bitten by a pit bull named charlie at crissy field back in august. animal offici
doubts that foreign u.n. body, a committee operating out of geneva switzerland should decide what is in the best interest of the child at home. insane. totally insane. >> that's are the flat earnthers. mike lee was joined by surprise surprise, rick santorum that said this will prevent parents. again, again, the treaty on disabledties just says all of the disabled people around the world should have the same opportunities that the united states does. hold the united states up in the americans disabilitities act as a model they should follow. my point is, if these insane republicans are still out there in la la land still out there like the flat earth society on this issue, do you think they are going to be able to come to an agreement on the debt ceiling or -- and on the fiscal cliff? forget it. >> it was remarkable to see how this happened yesterday. i will read from john stanton's twitter feed our friend from business feed. i was there -- buzzfeed. his presence could push it over the edge. dole was there watching them vote. after he left the floor,
and meeting with russian foreign minister sergei lav rov and the u.n. mediator to this crisis and we may be on the edge of seeing moscow finally move, finally willing to give up its support for assad. if that happens, you might be able to broker what most people had given up on, the idea that assad could go into exile. >> bill: because russia has been syria's main ally. >> absolutely. backing it all the way. there again this is our man. we're not going to look like obama did. we're not going to go back down. obama backed down on mubarak. the russians see that as a sign of weakness. we're sticking with our guy. the rebels are advancing. they're getting increasingly armed first from external sources but also from the bases they captured so they've got heavy equipment now. we talked about this last week. tanks, anti-aircraft that -- weapons that have downed two syrian aircraft in the last two weeks. so you see the assad forces falling back. they're in a fight for damascus at this point. so a lot of the heavy shelling tha
assad will use the weapons on his own people. former u.n. ambassador john bolton had this to say about the very dicey situation. >> i think it's far more likely he's threatening the opposition and basically either for negotiating purposes or because he thinks he's close to the end of the line, he's making it clear he's getting ready to use his ultimate weapon to increase his leverage. but i would not put it past assad to use this weapon. he's perfectly capable of doing it. it's the kind of regime he's been leading these past several years. >> gretchen: fox news learning the minimum tear drawing up contingency plans in case assad suddenly leaves syria. >>> another day, another blow to the tsa. exclusive report in the new york post reveals tsa screeners are doing their holiday shopping on the job? actually they're doing it not on the computer, they're doing it in your luggage. according to the report, 32-year-old sean henry was busted for stealing ipads and laptops from checked luggage at jfk airport in new york. police say it was part of a sting into the growing problem of screeners wit
with the russian foreign minister and the u.n. mediator in syria today in brevlin. >> let's talk about those meetings. >> you can be sure that this issue of chemical weapons will be at the top of the list. >> no question about that. what are the options there? what can the international community do at this point if, in fact, they are already in a position where they're loading these components on to the weapons? >> well, one is this public message from the united states, from the nato secretary general and from the russians. the syrian government, including assad personally, will be held accountable. second is perhaps to see if the russians can use their influence. they're the big egest arms supplier to syria, the biggest ally that syria has, to dissuade the syrians from letting this chemical weapons loose or using them against the rebel alliance. if assad should fall and there's a chaotic period of time where no one is in charge of the government in damascus, if one of those radical rebel groups gets control of chemical weapons, that could be potentially very, very dangerous and that might
and meetings of hillary clinton with the u.n. and her russian counterpart, there's no hope here for a diplomatic solution. instead, what people talk about is the suffering of the people. the people are showing tremendous resilience. this house was bombed by mistake. the people who lived here lived next to a rebel commander. now they're homeless. there is also tremendous economic difficulties here. the syrian currency is worth about half of what it was worth when the war began. a loaf of bread costs 20 time what is it did just a few months ago. despite all of this, the rebels are making advances. they say they will -- they hope to soon control the city of aleppo, the country's commercial capital. after that, damascus. richard engel, on the outskirts of aleppo. >> you both just saw richard's report. aaron, let me start with you. how real, at this point, is the fear that bashar al assad's regime could use those chemical weapons against the rebels? >> i think the fear is real. the question is, what's the point? desperate men trapped in difficult circumstances might actually deploy t

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: now rude, speaking of our body of government now what with this fiscal cliff thing? do you sense how this is going to play out at all? >> no. >> stephanie: okay good, thanks for calling. >> every time you think something is going to happen, somebody else comes out and says no no, no, we're not going to raise are the medicare age even though there were signs that was going to happen. klein wrote about that recently. now democrats came out this weekend. dick durbin and others saying we're not going to raise the medicare age. >> stephanie: i think that's a bad idea. the
for syria back on track, a u.n. effort that's stalled for so many months now. there's not a lot of hope it will get back on track anytime soon. a lot of international powers and pressure being put on syria to try to comply with some sort of peace plan so this nightmare scenario doesn't come to any sort of fruition. zoraida? >> all right, we're talking about a deadly nerve gas, it is sarin. can you tell us what kind of damage could this do to the people there? >> reporter: it's well known that sarin and the use of sarin is a nightmare scenario. the use of it could kill a huge amount of people in a very short amount of time. now, last night, a former cia officer, robert bear, was speaking to anderson cooper. he described what the use of sarin could do. here's more of what he had to say. >> one round and the dispersion on that could be -- depends on the wind -- but you could take out, let's say a city like homs, you could take out a third of the city in the first couple of hours. anderson, this is a highly toxic liquid. it's a persistent agent. it's absolutely completely deadly. >> reporte
in benghazi. take a listen. >> susan rice has done a great job as our u.n. ambassador. she has been a stalwart colleague in a lot of the tough decisions that we've had to make. and certainly with respect to defending our national interests and national security at the united nations. >> so clinton is also going to testify on benghazi next week. what are the politics of all of this for secretary clinton? and are there risks for her here? >> i don't think there are necessarily risks for her here as long as she stays out of the whole fray of susan rice and congressional republicans. there's an awful lot going on on that score, but i tnk hillary clinton may be able to keep herself above all that. by the way, we keep expecting the white house for this rice situation to be resolved. we fully expect president clinton to make -- excuse me, president obama to make his announcement about his national security team any day now. >> what do you hear with regards to that, david? are you hearing that susan race is going -- susan rice is going to get the nod or that the waters are shark infested and -- >> com
as the u.n. envoy to syria. with so much concern about the threat of chemical weapons at this point, do you think there are any diplomatic options left? >> i think the play -- and hillary clinton met twice today with russian foreign minister lavrov -- is to get russia in the tent with the rest of the world. everyone has predicted, when facts on the ground change, russia will be there. this could be a reset moment for vladimir putin, and he could, because of his unique sway in the area, persuade, i would think, the bashar family to step aside and create a peaceful transition, like the transition in yemen. the opposition is now more broadly representative, and i would hope the russians would see that being on the wrong side of this just creates more carnage, more opportunity for terrorists to get traction there and won't help russia. >> it's a pivotal moment, as we say, a clear tipping point. glad you're back safe and sound from egyp. jane harman, thanks so much for coming in. the jersey shore about to meet the fiscal cliff. grim news for governor christie as he visits washington. >>> plus th
